Minneapolis encampment 'Nenookaasi' cleared for the second time in one week

A high volume of calls for service and a more precarious mood led to a swift closure of the Minneapolis homeless encampment known as "Camp Nenookaasi" on Thursday, 48 hours after campers relocated from just blocks away.

It was the second time this week the city closed the camp after shuttering another iteration of Nenookaasi on Tuesday at E. 26th Street and 14th Avenue S.

"This situation just felt different. The safety concerns and the potential for violence was just too high," Minneapolis Office of Community Safety Commissioner Toddrick Barnette said at a news conference Thursday.
